Many people come together to make the ArtNight possible. The FFEM ArtNight is led by a team of ambassadors who take care of everything from invitations to finding a host and making sure there's plenty of food. The ambassadors also help with designing our website, making videos, creating surveys, and fundraising.
Jared and Rob lead the ArtNight team, manage the collaborations, apply for grants/funding, and are responsible for the general direction of the ArtNight.
